82 year old Malcolm Reynolds passed away in hospital following a crash near Breamore a week ago (Friday 19th June).

A statement's been released by Hampshire Police, on behalf of Malcolm's family:

"Beloved brother to Keith, Dennis, Norman and Sue. Husband of the late Christine, and father to Hannah and James. He also leaves behind three cherished grandchildren, and his companion Barbara. Malcolm was a wonderful father and much loved grandfather.

"He took great pleasure in the company of his friends and family, and although on the surface a quiet and unassuming man he had a great love of storytelling and an, often unexpectedly, quick wit. His gentleness and kindness was appreciated by all who knew him.

"He led active life with a wide circle of friends stretching from his school days, to former work colleagues and most recently his yoga club in Fordingbrige, he was also a member of Kinson Conservative Club.

"A great lover of life Malcolm was taken far too soon, we are devastated by this sudden loss. He will be sorely missed by many, especially his children and grandchildren."
